I went to target one day and I was soooo excited to see that they had these there. I bought them to store my MAC shadows and I couldnt be happier. I absolutely loooove the sturdy compact, the mirror, and the pearly color of the it. $1 for this one vs. $5 for the MAC ones, its pretty much a no brainer. I bought like 5 of them. I am going to try to take out the plastic divider so that I can store more shadows in it. Like many others, I really hope that E.L.F. comes out with one to store way more shadows!!! Its a MUST have!!!! I'm also going to try their shadows because I hear lots of good things. Can't wait!!!
I absolutely loooooove this as a highlighter shade. Its very fresh and gives such a beautiful glow to the brow bone and inner corner. I have been using this for YEARS!!! I have just recently hit the pan and I will absolutely be buying it again.
I was very dissapointed by this mascara. I was hoping I would be able to use it on "mascara only" days because I heard it was not as heavy as other mascaras but I was wrong. First of all it is barely noticeable unless I use atleast 3 coats but worst of all it does not hold a curl at all!!! I feel like there is barely any product in the tube because I dont see much on the actual brush. I will NOT buy this again, in fact I regret losing the receipt because now I just threw $8 down the drain.

I am so pleased with this product!!! I use this to set my foundation and it makes my skin look flawless. I use a brush to apply. It is so light but it does the job very welI. I will absolutely buy this over and over again!!!
I absolutely looove this foundation!!! I put it on with a coastal scents buffer brush and it looks absolutely flawless!!! It looks air brushed. I also love the consistancy which is like a mousse. Its not messy and so light. It offers light to med coverage which is perfect for me. I like to set it with the mineralize powder. I will definetly buy it again.
I really like this foundation. I like to apply it with a brush because that way I can control the coverage. This foundation is great for light coverage or you can apply more to make have more coverage. I have used this since high school and I always have some on hand. In fact i'm due for another compact soon!!!
Primer/ Corrector -MAC - Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone
nobryant03 4/4/2010 2:24:00 PM
OK so I got this because my friend got it and I had really high hopes as well. It does make my pores look smaller and it makes my foundation look smooth but it is not something I cant live without. I was hoping that it would make my foundation last longer but it doesnt seem to make a difference. I will use the rest of it but I dont think I will buy it again.
I bought this with high hopes. I was hoping I would love this product as much as everyone else but im sad to say that I dont. In fact, I will be returning it asap!!! First of all the color that was chosen for me does not blend well with the rest of my foundation (Obviously I know its not suppost to match) the consistancy is too fluid and it just settles in my creases and looks HORRIBLE!!! I absolutely looove MAC however, there are those few items that I just cant love. Oh well.
I love this mascara because it adds great volume to my lashes and it is truly black. The only thing I dont like about it is that I have to use a different mascara to hold a curl. I have stick straight lashes and I have to use my shu curler along with my Christian Waterproof mascara in order for the curl to stay. I then apply this one and it looks amazing!!! Will definetly buy again but like I said It will not hold a curl on me unless I use my Christian Waterproof mascara.
To be honest I bought this mascara because the packaging caught my eye. I purchased it knowing that It may not do all it said which was to lengthen and curl your lashes. I have stick straight lashes so I didnt expect it to magically curl my lashes on its own. So I used my Shu curler and got a perfect curl and then I put this mascara on my lashes. Needless to say I was very very dissapointed! It instantly straightened my lashes!!! I could not re-curl because I didnt want to rip out my lashes so I had to was it off and start all over!!! boo!
I got this when I bought the Hall of Fame set. It is not my fav mascara but because of its size I have it in my purse make up bag. I only use it when I need a touch up on top of my normal mascara because it does flake. Overall I am mostly just unsing it because I have it but not necessarily because I love it.
I really like how this smells. Its sweet and reminds me of cotton candy. My husband says he just wants to eat me up when I wear it!!! I don't wear it everyday but when I do people definetly notice.
Misc Beauty Tools -Sonia Kashuk - Metal Eyelash Comb
nobryant03 3/25/2010 7:24:00 PM
I have owned this comb for almost 2 YEARS!!!! I absolutely cannot live without it!!!! The fact that the comb is metal and that the teeth of the comb are so thin is what makes this so amazing!!! I have not had any issues with it breaking or falling apart and like i've said i've had it for almost 2 years. I think that I am going to buy a few more just because I have had many things that I fall in love with and then they get discontinued or something. In conclusion...toss those useless, and bulky plastic combs and get one of these. You will definetily see a HUGE DIFFERENCE!!! Got mine at Target.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)
nobryant03 3/25/2010 5:43:00 PM
I absolutely looove this primer!!! I use MAC eyeshadows religiously and they crease like crazy but since i've been using this primer I can wear my shadows without worrying about having crazy looking creases. I got it in the hall of fame set so it is bigger than the normal size and i dont have to use too much of the product so i know it will last a long time. I read in some reviews that the brush doesnt pick up too much product but its a perfect amt for me.
Treatments (Eye) -Unlisted Brand - Latisse Lash Growth Drops
nobryant03 3/21/2010 5:03:00 PM
I have been using the actual Latisse brand for almost 5 weeks and I loooove it!!! I was afraid to try the off label/generic versions. My lashes are longer and I can see that there is new growth coming in with a curl!!! You can see a dramatic difference especially in my corner lashes. With mascara you can definetly tell that the rest of my lashes have grown as well. I got mine for 69!!! after a 20 mail in rebate from lashesonline.com it will ask you to fill out a questionnaire so that you can get an rx and order it right off line. I have been using the same bottle and its still more than half full so i am thinking it should last about 3 months!!!! and for only $69!!!!. I use one drop for both eyes every night before bed. As for side effects, I will be honest by saying that the first 2 weeks I did have really red eyes and some dryness but that has all gone away. I am very excited that I have seen results with only 5 weeks of use, i cannot wait until the 16 week mark!!! I will keep purchasing Latisse FOR EVER!!!! UPDATE- WEEK 8: Okay so I have been using Latisse for 8 weeks now and I still have about 1/3 of the bottle left. I am still using one drop for both eyes every night and I am completely IN LOOOOVE!!!! I am already planning to buy my 2nd bottle because I dont want to be even one day without it. I have definetly noticed a signaficant change in length and I also have more lashes now. Some lashes are much longer than others but Its not a big deal. Overall I am extremely, extremely please with this product. I have pics on my profile if you would like to check them out. Thanx for reading. UPDATE-WEEK12: I'm on week 12 and my lashes have gotten atleast 50% longer!!! I am still on my first bottle too!!! I have noticed that my outer lashes are the longest and the curliest. I am loving my lashes and I am also loving playing around with different mascaras.I have absolutely no complaints. I couldn't be happier. I cannot wait until week 16. Thanx for reading.
